Illinois Senior Session

Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Unforgettable Photography by Anna, located in Germantown, IL!

Describe this session for our readers:
“Callie and I had several discussions about her session and possible ideas and locations for her senior pictures. We ultimately decided that with so many different looks, we were going to keep it close to home. She really wanted some kind of urban feel to one outfit and the night before her session I thought of a place I had never used before: Our county courthouse! It has concrete steps, concrete pillars, super tall windows that all face north! After approval from the county, we were given the ok and her ‘urban’ look turned out awesome! She also wanted to do some images with her dad’s 69 mustang that he fixed up ‘for Callie’ (hence the license plate). We went to our county lake and even though we had to work around 11am sun, the clouds and location brought it all together. Callie believes in symbolism and so each piece of jewelry she wore had some sort of meaning. We wanted to find a location that framed and focused on her and the accessories she chose for each outfit. When I came across this section of flowers, we knew we were going to trek through the weeds and long grasses to get to them! Indoors, I wanted to give her some editorial looks and her black one piece jump suit was the perfect fit for that look. She also wanted something with a softer feel so we did some natural light images in a soft pink top. Lastly, her senior year wouldn’t be complete without doing something with her cheer uniform. We went out to the school football field and had fun photographing in the stands and also the locker room.”

What inspired this session?
“Callie’s love of accessories
Callie’s outfits and outgoing personality

We didn’t go off of pinterest or anything like that. She had her own ideas and collaboratively we came up with locations together and she really let me take creative control on the session.

I had just come home from Push Conference so I was inspired to try some of the new lighting technique I had learned.”
